Graciousness is not always high on the list of attributes you find in successful rock ‘n’ roll stars.

Because of this, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductions have sometimes brought out the worst in its inductees, whether continuing once-private feuds in public or launching criticism at the hall itself. This year it’s Kiss that’s angry, its members upset over the organization’s decision to induct only original members Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Peter Criss and Ace Frehley while excluding those who joined later.

As a result, the makeup-wearing rockers won’t be wearing makeup or rocking at Thursday’s ceremony at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn when they’re inducted with Nirvana, Peter Gabriel, Linda Ronstadt, Hall and Oates, Cat Stevens, The E Street Band, late Beatles manager Brian Epstein and former Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham, who also is boycotting this year’s show over dissatisfaction with his role.
